Post oil pan bolts

i am trying to remove the oil pan on my cj so that i can replace the rear main seal. one question though. who put a freakin bolt behind the motor mount??? i have all the bolts out except one on the passenger side that is covered by the dawgone motor mount. any suggestions on how to get this thing out, as well as tips on how to get the oil pan to come loose from the block? i think what im going to do is hacksaw a little of the mount so i can get a wrench in there... htnaks for any ideas!!

Don't hacksaw the mount! You have to remove the mount and jack the engine a bit to be able to do the job. That is normal protocol. The pan won't even come out without removing the mount. You have to unbolt it from the block. You can jack the engine from the bottom of your bellhousing, seems to be the easiest place to do it.

It's not a bad job. The mount comes out easy and will reinstall easy as well, but it is absolutely necessary to remove it. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />
